Ranking the weirdest things Aaron Rodgers has done.
Have you noticed the US government shooting down unidentified flying objects? Aaron Rodgers does too, and he has a theory on that. No, it’s not because the US is looking for balloon-sized objects where they’ve been before, it’s because the scary government is trying to distract you from… Jeffrey Epstein.
“There’s a lot of old papers and files on interactions that Navy pilots have had with unidentified flying objects, so this isn’t surprising,” Rodgers told Pat McAfee on Tuesday. “Obviously there was supposedly some kind of Chinese spy balloon in the air and there were a few other objects that were shot down. I believe this has been the case for a long time. Interesting timing for everything. There are many other things going on in the world.”
Rodgers and McAfee then went on to explain the “crazy shit” going on in the world. And Rodgers had this extremely nuanced and well-informed view of Epstein:
“Have you heard about the Epstein client list that is about to be released? There are some files with names that might be released soon. [Ghislaine] Maxwell was the only person ever convicted of human trafficking, and no one involved in human trafficking ever went to prison, so…nothing to see here.”
Seriously, this is one of the dumbest conversations of anything I’ve ever heard in my life, and the fact that people listen to these brainstorms about current events is startling and devastatingly depressing.
Julie K. Brown, a Miami-based reporter who has been covering the Epstein story since day 1 wrote a whole book about itShe was understandably appalled by Rodgers’ continued spread of misinformation:
But that’s how misinformation spreads, right? Someone with a platform who hasn’t bothered to research, “heard” of something, mostly misunderstands the story, told someone else – who also hasn’t done research, follows a giant phone game and “Jeffrey Epstein Chinese Balloon Purple Monkey Dishwasher” comes out. And when those who actually know better try to correct the records, they’re called “hands-on” by a bunch of idiots who never knew what they were talking about. Great job Aaron.
If the Jets read this, sign Derek Carr! You don’t want that circus rolling into town.
